3 local basketball coaches will be inducted in Hall of Fame

The Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association will honor the coaches in July.

The Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association’s Hall of Fame class of 2018 will have a decidedly local feel.

Area coaches Larry Walker, Marv Morris and Nalin Sood are three of the four coaches who will be inducted in July. Walker was the longtime head coach of the Everett Community College men’s team, Morris coached the Shorecrest, King’s and Shorewood high school boys teams, and Sood is the current coach of the Mountlake Terrace High School boys squad.

They, along with Tenino High School’s Hal Williams, will be officially inducted July 24 at a banquet held at Nile Country Club in Mountlake Terrace.

Walker spent 31 years as the head coach at Everett CC (1985-2016), compiling a 404-474 record and guiding the Trojans to seven Northwest Athletic Conference tournaments, with a peak of finishing second in 1995.

Morris spent 19 seasons at Shorecrest, King’s and Shorewood between 1989 and 2015, compiling a 300-150 record. His teams reached the postseason 14 times, including claiming state titles with King’s in 2001 and 2002.

Sood has been the head coach of the Mountlake Terrace boys since 2000. In his 16 seasons the Hawks have posted a 241-143 record, qualified for the postseason 13 times and twice placed at state, with a high of third in 2005.

One other local coach will be honored at the banquet. Arlington High School boys coach Nick Brown will receive the Pat Fitterer “You Gotta Love It” Award for his positive contributions to coaching.

Locals shine in NCAA tournament

Three players from local high schools helped their teams win games in the NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship.

Archbishop Murphy graduate Cali Crisler, a senior midfielder for Arizona, scored the game-winning goal in the 81st minute of the Wildcats’ 2-1 victory over TCU in the first round. Crisler and the Wildcats bowed out in the second round in a 2-0 loss to Florida State on Friday. Crisler finished the season with two goals and seven assists to lead Arizona in points with 11.

Marysville Getchell graduate Kelsee Crenshaw, a senior defender at Washington State, scored the game-tying goal in the 79th minute as the Cougars upset second-seeded Tennessee 3-2 in a shootout in the second round. WSU saw its season come to an end Sunday with a 1-0 loss to Florida in the round of 16. Crenshaw finished the season with one goal and one assist.

Edmonds-Woodway graduate Madison Schultz, a sophomore forward for North Carolina, had an assist on the final goal of the Tar Heels’ 3-0 victory over High Point in the first round. North Carolina was eliminated Sunday in the round of 16 in a 2-1 loss to Princeton. Schultz finished the season with two goals and two assists.

Triton volleyball players honored

Three members of the Edmonds Community College volleyball team were honored as Northwest Athletic Conference North Region All-Stars.

Freshman outside hitter Michelle Dmitruk, a graduate of Cascade High School, and sophomore middle blocker Sydney Lawrence were named to the first team. Sophomore setter Macy Magri was selected to the second team.

The Tritons, who finished second in the North Region, went 1-2 at the NWAC Volleyball Championship Tournament held Thursday through Sunday in Tacoma and did not place.

Clark comes up short of Olympics

Lynnwood’s Brady Clark was unable to earn a curling berth to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea. Clark was the skip of one of the five men’s teams invited to the U.S. Olympic Team Trials held last week in Omaha, Nebraska. However, Clark’s team went 1-7 in double round-robin play and did not advance to the playoffs.
